#2239: Nissin Cup Noodles Chicken Flavor Ramen Noodle Soup (New Recipe)

After a few decades, Nissin decided they wanted to make some changes to one of their flagship products here in the United States, Cup Noodles. They’ve lowered sodium and now there is no added MSG and no artificial flavors. I thought this was kind of interesting as last year they came out with these new cups, but it looks like they’re not available anymore. Let’s have a look at this iconic domestic instant noodle in a cup.

Open lid halfway and add boiling water to inside fill line. Cover. Let steep for 3 minutes. Stir and enjoy! AGAIN, DON’T MICROWAVE THE CUP!

Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, kizami shoga, spring onion, hard boiled egg, shichimi togarashi and chicken cooked sous vide style at 147°F for 135 minutes with Johnny’s Chicken & Pork seasoning. The noodles hydrated well and there were a lot of them. The broth was salty and chicken flavored – pretty good. The included vegetable bits hydrated perfectly and were of good quality. I tried these and the old version back to back recently. I found the new recipe’s noodle had a little less chewiness to them compared to the old recipe. I also noticed the flavor of the broth seemed to concentrate more on a mushroom base rather than chicken. When I sampled the noodles today without something to compare them to, I didn’t feel any of these things; they just tasted like a regular chicken Cup Noodles. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars.  UPC bar code 070662030035.

#1921: Nissin Cup Noodles Ramen Noodle Soup Chicken Flavor [New Package]

Hey check it out – Nissin Cup Noodles got a big facelift.

Here’s how they used to look – cardboard outer packaging is now gone. Less packaging and different materials have been used to make them more environmentally friendly. Also, they’re now microwavable! Yes, I’m sure many of you microwaved them before, but you weren’t supposed to. The new cups also have a little extra room so you can add veggies and meats or whatever you want to oomph up your noodles! Let’s check this new cup out!

Thought I’d do a little update of how Miles is doing. He”ll be just over 5 months old when this review comes out. He’s growing fast and seems to be interested in just about everything.

He always looks so fascinated when I’m eating noodles too – it’ll be a while, but he’ll get to try them, that’s for sure.

Detail of the side panels (click to enlarge). Contains chicken. To prepare, remove lid and fill to line with room temperature water. Set in the middle of the microwave and cook for 2 1/2 minutes. Let sit another minute. stir and enjoy!

Finished (click to enlarge). Added processed cheese, barbecue pork, mayonnaise, fried garlic and red pepper flake (and no, it isn’t 3am and I haven’t just returned from the pub). The noodles come out very nicely after a spin in the microwave – decent quality and good quantity. The broth has a nice chicken flavor to it. Nice and hot out of the microwave too. The vegetables came out well hydrated and crisp. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 070662030035.
